Fill out the front of the form with the name of the person who will be the sponsor and use your information for payment.

Hello Sally, thank you for your help. It is better to have two accounts set up. One for the financial supporter and then a second for the correspondent. This way the financial supporter will be able to access their account for all financial related information, including their tax statement. The correspondent will be able to access their account to write letters and share photos. It just helps so that things are not confusing. :-)

Hi Judith! I am so grateful that you are interested in sponsoring a child with Compassion. If you would like to financially sponsor a child, but have someone else listed as the correspondent, we would be happy to set that up for you. This way all of the financial information would be in your name, but they will be able to write letters back and forth with the child. I would recommend calling us at, 800-336-7676, Monday through Friday from 7 am to 5:30 pm Mountain Time. You may also email us at, socialmedia@compassion.com. We would need the child's number and the source code on the packet. We would also need the correspondent's and your full name, mailing address, phone number and email address. I recommend calling because we can not accept credit card or bank account information via email due to security risks.
